Mailday – Super Methane Bros and other Amiga CD32 games

I usually get games in the mail on a weekly basis, but I rarely feel like I have the time to make a full scale blog post about them, but I thought I might make some shorter posts as well just showing what has arrived ^_^ The collecting is constant! Haha :D But I have quite a pile of games to go through that I haven’t had the time to try out yet.. :/ Mainly because I’ve been super busy with work.. but I’ll get through them eventually ^_^

Today I had a parcel in the mail with some Amiga CD32 games that I bought from eBay. I’ve told myself not to buy a bunch of CD games and focus on cartridges, mainly because I don’t enjoy the loading times and I also have a hard time with the early 3D graphics, but I got a pretty good deal on these :) So I couldn’t pass it up!

I don’t really know what any of them are except for Chuck Rock which I also have for a few other systems. I’m fairly certain that Ultimate Body Blows is some kind of fighting game XD

Super Methane Bros is the one I fell for,  the name suggests it’s kind of a grown up version of Super Mario Bros, but I could be completely wrong XD I’m hoping it’s a 2D platformer, but it’s probably not >_< Alien Breed Tower Assault sounds like a strategy type tower defence game? I’m just guessing! Haha ^_^

Super Stardust is probably a shmup, I’m just hoping it’s not too much 3D.. but it looks like it from the screenshots on the back :( Diggers & Oscar are two games in one I think :) Don’t know the genre but I’m thinking Diggers is some kind of Dig Dug/Mr. Driller clone..

Anyway, I’ll be back soon with my pickups from Retro Gathering VCE 2017, it’s just A LOT to go through XD

  1. You’re in luck! Super Stardust in game is not in 3d AT ALL. It’s basically an Asteroids clone but with rendered sprites instead of the polygons of the original. The cut scenes are 3d. Bit cheating to put those screens on the back.

  2. Great pick ups. If you like Bubble Bobble you’ll very much enjoy Super Methane Brothers. You might call it a clone, in addition to blowing bubbles (or methane) you then suck (or hoover) the enemies up and spit them back out to kill them. A fun game to play with a friend
